Thank you, Mr. McDonald, for performing real journalism and putting out a piece to educate the public. Please share this, post this, speak with your friends and family. We as Angelinos must understand and face this problem in order to demand change and solve it. Call your representative, tell them to work for you and not lobbyists/corporate interests. This is your city too. An uninformed public is an easily manipulated public. Do your part. Get this news out. "Evil prospers when good men do nothing." - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Do no let us do nothing. VOTE! The more constituents that vote, the more officials consider their impact. We must be active in the political process, lest corporations and lobbyists be the only voices officials hear. This is your democracy. Fight for it.
